Here are some of our new favorite non-beef burgers: Italian Turkey Burger, Grilled Tuna Burger and Goat Cheese Portobello Burger. You’ll want to perfect these before football season starts up in a few weeks! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

A tour of Black's BBQ in Lockhart

I had to take my bride to Austin for a meeting today, so on the way back to Houston, I made a slight detour through Lockhart to my favorite BBQ joint on the planet - Blacks.

We got brisket and ribs and a couple of sides. But the good part is that they gave me a tour of the pits in the back.  Not much being cooked, since it was 2:00 on a Tuesday, but there was enough to get the idea.  I'm posting this because of the info he gave me.  They cook their meats at 300 - 350 degrees.  I thought it would have been in the low 200s.  He also said they don't cook to time or temperature, but feel.  He got out a probe and pretended to stick the brisket.  I said "kinda like the toothpick method?" and he said "exactly".

So, next time, I'm upping the temp and getting the toothpicks out.
